Our mission for today was to get Tom's new suit posted to the UK so we don't have to carry it the rest of the trip. We risked life and limb walking across the city to the main post office. En route we walked by the mini Notre dame built here (guessing) during the French rule. It's built with the original in mind but without the grandeur.
The Lonely Planet guide had told us the post office was worth the visit just to appreciate architecture, you've got to wonder if these guys actually visit the places, the building was big, 1960s, concrete mess and to make it worse the floor was covered in rubbish. Thankfully, the actual process of posting a parcel was pretty painless. We paid a woman 50p to make an amazingly fast cardboard box out of one sheet (worth the money just to watch her) then we got it posted. Tried to get surface mail but turned out too difficult to communicate so went air £10 didn't seem too bad for 2 kg anyway. En route back to our guesthouse we stopped at the market and had lunch at the same spot as yesterday and just ended up walking around markets for a few hours.
In the evening we went on a rat spotting mission, well actually just went out for drinks and it turned out that way. We spotted two outside our guesthouse just sat chilling, eating and really couldn't care we were there, managed to get a photo but was a little dark. We then sat in a few bars and Rachael recognised a familiar face walk by, unsure at first it turned out Pardeep was in Ho Chi Minh having last seen him in Vientine, Laos. It was nice to catch up as he'd spent the last few weeks travelling south through Vietnam, the opposite direction we're about to do, managed to pick-up a few tips. Tomorrow we get on a bus north to Muine, 4.5 hours north.
